Wajib / Annemarie Jacir

Wajib / Annemarie Jacir


Local Palestinian custom dictates that a bride’s male relatives must hand-deliver her wedding invitations, and so a father and his estranged son (played by an actual father and son) come together, get in the car, and do their duty.

Shot in the biblical city of Nazareth, this whip-smart family comedy-drama represents the third time filmmaker Annemarie Jacir’s work was chosen as Palestine’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Oscar. “An intimate, well-played disquisition on what it means to be a Palestinian abroad versus a Palestinian at home” (Variety).

Since its premier at Toronto International Film festival in 2017, Wajib has brought home more than a dozen awards at film festivals from Dubai to London to Locarno.
